The Eagle Has Landed

Thrilled to learn that Rosemary Sutcliff’s book The Eagle of the Ninth has been made into a movie, scheduled for release in the fall.

The book was a terrific read, full of stirring action and savvy and authentic in background. It tells the tale of the Ninth Roman Legion who disappears without a trace in the wilds of A.D. 119 Britain. It’s fifteen years later and the son of the legion’s commander embarks on a quest to recover the lost eagle standard and find out what happened to his father.
